Help WZBC Sports Grow

In the 1990s there were no BC message boards or BC blogs. If you were a student and you wanted to talk or cover BC sports you could join the Heights or WZBC. My path was ZBC. Our shoe string budget had its limitations but was a good primer for the years ahead. Doing something you love, having fun and learning to cover the teams has put numerous BC guys on the path to careers in sports.

Fortunately new media, new technology and a passionate student base has helped grow WZBC to a staff of 40 students. The current crew have aggressive expansion goals but need more financial support. If you want to help the next generation of BC coverage and enjoy the coverage yourself, you can send a tax-deductable donation to WZBC Sports. Contact the station's promo director adam.rose.1 at bc dot edu for more information.

My husband was GM at WZBC in '73-74, when it went FM; good memories of those days. It's great to see how far they've come.

1964-66 WZBC was "broadcast" only in the dorms. I can remember listening to bb and hockey away games sitting in Fenwick. Got "promoted" by Fr. H, a/k/a "Pack Your Bags" to Southwell House and missed the in house broadcasts.
